SyFy's KRYPTON Taps Shakespeare for Romantic Sub-Plot

SyFy's upcoming series, KRYPTON, will feature a forbidden romance between an El and a Zod.

“Two households, both alike in dignity
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Do with their death bury their parents' strife.”

Act 1, (Prologue): ROMEO AND JULIET, written by William Shakespeare

Knight Moves: Gotham Episode 412, "Pieces of a Broken Mirror"

Gotham 412 - Pieces of a Broken Mirror

GOTHAM returns from hiatus, but doesn't really move its story forward all that much, as this season's overarching title is "A Dark Knight," which ostensibly means we're going to see more of Bruce Wayne (DAVID MAZOUZ) on the road to becoming Batman. And, indeed, early in the season we were seeing just that. But then he became a brat, which he remains to this point in the series, firing Alfred and living a life of drunken partying and debauchery.

Catching Up: The Flash Episode 414, "Subject 9"

Flash 414 Subject 9 - Izzy Bowin, The Fiddler

After a brief hiatus that felt like an eternity, THE FLASH is back, in an episode that is both good and still very critiquable.

Having realized that the body-hopping Devoe (now played by SUGAR LYN BEARD) is targeting all of the metahumans  created on the bus that got swamped by dark matter, Team Flash has created a "buddy system" to keep tabs on Ralph Dibny (HARTLEY SAWYER), aka The Elongated Man. But that still leaves them with four more metahumans to track down.

High School Poppycock

Lucifer (TOM ELLIS) has hit a mental block. He's been trying to find a way to break Cain's curse and end his immortal life, but everything he can think of is something that Cain has already tried. The Devil isn't used to being out of ideas, and it bothers him into an unlikely sullenness that Chloe (LAUREN GERMAN) notices. However, when a murdered YA science fiction author is rumored to have written in the afterword to her latest book the cure for her writer's block, Lucifer is keenly focused on finding the killer so that he can find the stolen manuscript.

Kit Harington Selected as Best Series Actor for 2017

Kit Harington Best of 2017

The "Best Actor in a Series" category is probably one of the most hotly contested in this year's Best of 2017 awards. It's not just that there were so many nominees to choose from, but every one of them comes with a solid fan following, and the shows they appeared on represented a myriad of genres. Just about everyone on THE ORVILLE got at least one vote, attesting to the ardent following of that series. Also in the running were all the leads from the CW super-shows -- ARROW's Stephen Amell, THE FLASH's Grant Gustin, and SUPERGIRL's Melissa Benoist -- as well as comedies like YOUNG SHELDON's (Iain Armitage), medical dramas like THE GOOD DOCTOR (Freddie Highmore), and dystopian science fiction like THE HANDMAID'S TALE (Elisabeth Moss).

Readers Select Netflix Original's Stranger Things as Best Serial of 2017

Stranger Things

Probably harder to select than the Best Movie of 2017 is the Best Serial of 2017. Because let's face it -- not only do we watch a lot of shows on our devices, but there are so many new outlets creating original content. It's not like the old days of the early 21st century when your favorite shows were generated by a cable network (and don't even get me started on my antediluvian childhood woes of only having three broadcast networks to pick from, plus a UHF channel you could pick up if the weather was clear).

As a result, there were a ton of contenders vying for the spot of Best Serial of 2017. But in the end, there could be only one -- and it was a close shave! GAME OF THRONES put in a strong second place, taking 20 percent of the votes.

Pep Talk: Riverdale Episode 213, "The Tell-Tale Heart"

Riverdale 213 Telltale Heart

If Diogenes ever carried his lantern into the city limits of Riverdale, he'd be gone on to Greendale before the day was out.

Let's start with the Cooper household. Not only has the arrival of eldest brother Chic (HART DENTON), whom IMDb now lists as "Chic Smith" so we can better understand some of Hal's resentments, created discord with the Coopers, now he's also brought murder to their doorstep. And Betty (LILI REINHART), poor Betty, instantly jumps in to help her mother clean up and dispose of the body. We don't even know who killed him yet. We may not think it's Chic, with that heroin-thin frame of his, but surely Alice didn't just become a murderer? Regardless, Betty gets involved in the cover-up, moving the body to a disused sewage pipe.

Catching Up: The Flash Episode 413, "True Colors"

Flash 413 True Colors

The plans of The Thinker (currently played by KENDRICK SAMPSON) are further revealed, and further complicated, in this episode of THE FLASH. With Barry's powers having been revealed to Warden Wolfe (RICHARD BROOKS), he's been locked away in an "off the books" metahuman wing. It's off the books because the warden has secretly been selling metahumans to Amunet Black (KATEE SACKHOFF), and now he knows that Barry Allen (GRANT GUSTIN) is The Flash and locks him away with his most recent captures: Becky "Hazard" Sharpe (SUGAR LYN BEARD), Mina "Black Bison" Chayton (CHELSEA KURTZ), Sylbert "Dwarfstar" Rundine (DEREK MEARS), and Ramsey "Kilg%re" Deacon (DOMINIC BURGESS). But when Barry learns that they are up for sale to Amunet Black, he begins working on a breakout. This is a great scene for Barry, as he's working without powers and showing what he's capable of as a scientist going full MacGuyver.

Devil's Advocate: Lucifer Episode 314, "My Brother's Keeper"

Lucifer 314, "My Brother's Keeper"

With Cain (TOM WELLING) now openly interacting with Lucifer (TOM ELLIS), it was only natural that the phrase "My Brother's Keeper" get used as an episode title. And since Lucifer's travails always must mirror somehow those going on with his associates in the LAPD, we should expect sibling issues with someone else.

In this case, the issues are with Ella Lopez (AIMEE GARCIA), whose brother has gone missing. He's a diamond authenticator, and it appears he's involved in some shady deal with a smuggler, thief or some-such. Ella is so concerned over his disappearance that she immediately hires Mazikeen (LESLEY-ANN BRANDT) to bounty-hunt him. What they find is the dead body of the diamond dealer, and it appears Ella's big brother is Suspect Numero Uno.

Riverdale 212 Wicked and the Divine

So much happens on this episode of RIVERDALE, not the least of which is "Black" Betty (LILI REINHART) working out her new webcam business. The town is all abuzz about the decapitation of the statue of the town's founder, General Pickens, and the pressure is on the Southside Serpents as the most likely suspects. Sheriff Keller (MARTIN CUMMINS) has made numerous visits to the community, asking the same questions over and over, but when he shows up delivering eviction notices because the trailers are behind in their rent, Jughead (COLE SPROUSE) can no longer sit idle.

After Shocks: Black Lightning Episode 103, "Lawanda: The Book of Burial"

Black Lightning 103

Picking up where things left off with the murder of Lawanda at the hands of The 100, a local pastor decides to lead 100 of his own parishioners in a march to take back their streets. For reasons unknown, Tobias Whale (MARVIN 'KRONDON' JONES III) decides to send a message to this march, rather than let the protesters finish their parade and disburse unrecognized, and sends a gunman to deliver this message.

Both Inspector Henderson (DAMON GUPTON) and Jefferson Pierce (CRESS WILLIAMS) try to talk the reverend out of holding the march, but he is adamant. The return of Black Lightning has given them hope, and inspired them to take back their streets. Of course, none of them realize that Jefferson is Black Lightning.

Catching Up: The Flash Episode 412, "Honey, I Shrunk Team Flash"

Honey I Shrunk Team Flash

"Honey, I Shrunk Team Flash" is one of those episodes that is full of amusing action and heart-warming hope that ends on a seriously dramatic note for our hero that gut-punches you because you've had your guard down for the past hour.

The show opens with Cecile Horton (DANIELLE NICOLET) talking with Joe West (JESSE L MARTIN) about their pending baby, when it is discovered that she has developed a super-power: she can read minds. Caitlin Snow (DANIELLE PANABAKER) runs tests, and confirms there is no dark matter in the amniotic fluid, and Cecile was definitely not on the bus of people struck by the second dark matter wave unleashed by the machinations of Clifford Devoe. Her theory is that she had latent dark matter in her from the first explosion, triggered by the pregnancy, and that it will likely go away once the baby is born. We'll see.
